No problem bro, it is very interesting all of this.

The usage of the Phoenican letters is undisputed in ancient linguistics and what we have to follow is their conterporary usage/meaning in that time instead of going from present time to reflect the past. It can't work upside down as the egg can't be older than the chicken (as we use to say).

If we follow the pronountiation of those Phoenican letters incorporated in the coins and other matherial evidence, we will get final product - ALESANDROF.
